This highly unusual pair of roaring lion statues have been crafted from the finest pink marble, and they are sure to leave a lasting impression wherever their new owner chooses to place them.
Lions have long been an important cultural symbol throughout Europe, Asia and Africa, with their usage dating back thousands of years.
These incredible creatures sit near the top of the food chain within the animal kingdom, and there have been many incidents of lions attacking humans throughout history. However, lions retain a positive reputation in popular culture, thanks to their demeanour which is seen as a strong, but gentle, giant.
The most popular depiction of the lion throughout history and culture is symbolic of their image as “king of the jungle.” Lions are typically used as a symbol of stateliness and bravery, hence why they are often used in relation to royalty, and of course, as guardian figurines, like the marble statues that Regent Antiques have just delivered.
